We're back with our yearly tribute to the oldskool, and this time we've brought a few friends along... Featuring... |APHRODITE| The Drum 'n' Bass DJ and producer Gavin King, who was born in Aberystwyth, Wales, but raised in Eltham, is one of the original rave scene and Jungle pioneers. He runs the label Aphrodite Recordings and has founded Urban Takeover with Michael Hearn aka Micky Finn. He took his artist name from the name of a house night he used to co-promote from 1988 1990 whilst at Warwick University. He held a regular Sunday show on pirate station Pulse FM until the station shut down in 1995. |Crissy Criss| Hailing from Leytonstone, Crissy Criss was constantly exposed to pioneers of the primordial Drum and Bass scene, and given the best start possible for a certified D&B selector. Given his first pair of decks at five by his step father Kenny Ken, Crissy’s mum was also the founder of the DJ Agency Ton Management. Home to the likes of Kenny Ken, Nicky Blackmarket, DJ Rap, Ratpack, EZ Rollers, Peshay and Stevie Hyper D, the musical environment was a huge influence for a young DJ - and proved instrumental in his later career. After hanging round with Drum and Bass’ brightest lights, it was no surprise that Crissy soon became interested in following the Drum and Bass heroes he admired. Crissy’s first gigs were played to an empty room, sneaking into Kenny Ken’s studio when he wasn’t home - but it was at the tender age of barely nine that his career began its meteoric ascent. After months of dedicated practise and lots of broken turntable needles, Crissy's first gig as a DJ came without warning - at an empty Festival at The Essex Show ground. A last minute replacement for Kenny Ken, Crissy ended up playing alongside the likes of Andy C and GQ - names he would regularly be associated with in the future. Four years later aged 13, Crissy had his first ever DJ booking. Handpicked by the mighty DJ Zinc, Crissy warmed up the legendary ‘End’ club for a line up that included Mampi Swift, Bad Company and Andy C. In 2001, Crissy also began playing abroad - solidifying his position as an international top DnB DJ. Since then, Crissy Criss has continued to be a force behind the decks, smashing crowds worldwide - every weekend. |Scott Henry| |Dubtribe Sound System| |Huda| --------------------------------- Austin Powers Bill & Ed Buster Ciconte vs Begood Concrya & Clandestine Cybin Quest Dreamer Dr Rabit Flyer Power Hazelnut vs Fringe Mack Turner vs Dj Nysus DJ Obscure Over 9000 Rutch Dudder Tek Sneak THE OGS Tzeech Violent Music Lighting by the one and only Sentient Lighting Photography by Inmotion Event Photography $35 Presale tickets are available right now! http://www.ticketfly.com/event/1527407 MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE OFFICIAL AFTERPARTY! - https://www.facebook.com/events/1573766012713028
